Online Shopping 101: Vintage Shopping with Market Publique

I always love discovering new websites that are easy to use, have a great layout and well, have to do with shopping.  I attended the IFB conference in September where I met Pamela Castillo, Co-Founder and Creative director of Market Publique.  Market Publique is an online auction site solely dedicated to vintage clothing and accessories. Anyone who has tried vintage shopping online knows what a cavernous mess of a maze it can be.  Etsy and Ebay may have massive web sites filled to the brim with vintage goods, but let's be honest, they are so overwhelming and the sellers aren't always reliable.  Castillo explained that Market Publique is different because the site administrators select and approve the sellers before they are allowed to list items on the website.  The selection may be smaller than some of those "mega-sites", but the site has a higher end curated feel to it and the items look like they are a higher quality.  I am all for quality over quantity, if you are too and love a good vintage find swing by Market Publique.  Here is a snapshot of some of the gorgeous pieces currently up for auction.

60's Structured Kelly Green Purse, $35
70's Crochet Vest, $14.99

60's Wool Pencil Dress with Bow, $55

80's Polka Dot Crop Top, $7.99

80's Tribal Collar Necklace, $30
Remember the things pictured are only a sample of the offerings on Market Publique, because of they are one of a kind they may not be available.  I hope you enjoyed my website roundup for Market Publique, got a great online vintage source share it in the comments section below.
